Baseball is funny. One day, your favorite team can jump out to a 4-0 lead in the first inning, and then have it become 5-0 after three innings, and you find yourself thinking “Looks like we have a runaway here boys!” But, then, in the end, the final score is much closer – like in this one where the end result was 6-4.
Then again, maybe this one would have been not so close…if not for Carmen Sandiego?
Hey, bottom line, the Yankees won. And, that’s the most important thing.
An item, unrelated to this game, but something I wanted to share: This evening, I found myself at TD Bank Ballpark in Bridgewater, NJ, to see Sparky Lyle’s Somerset Patriots host Tim Raines’ Newark Bears. (I was there due to a corporate function.) And, while I was at the park, it was announced that today is Sparky Lyle’s 65th birthday.
As you may know, I have a soft spot in my heart for Lyle. So, of course, I have to offer him a “Happy Birthday!” here – as well as my best wishes for many, many, more great birthdays to come.
